Our Lady of Hope Catholic School A National Blue Ribbon, K-8 school located in Potomac Falls, VA Educating for Eternity



Volunteers are vital to our school and we appreciate the time and talent that is contributed by our wonderful parents! Volunteer hours are not required, however our parents are involved both at school and at home as their schedules allow.

Want to get involved?

New volunteers are always welcome! An individual who wishes to volunteer in any capacity with children must become compliant and complete the following as required by the Diocese of Arlington’s Office of Child Protection (OPCYP):

  • Online Background Check Forms
  • Attend Virtus Seminar
  • TB Screening from within the last 12 months

Please do not sign up to volunteer until all three of these requirements are completed. If you are not a volunteer, but would like to start the process, please contact Mrs. Matzke.


Our PTO sends home an interest form at the beginning of each school year to assess parent involvement for specific committees/events. Classroom teachers also request assistance for various needs throughout the year.

PTO Events: If you’d like to get involved with a specific event, please contact PTO President & Volunteer Coordinator, Mrs. Boggs.
